HARRISBURG, Pa. (4/29/2022) – On Saturday, April 23rd, Harrisburg Young Professionals (HYP) partnered with Tri County Community and other organizations in the community as part of the Great Harrisburg Litter Clean Up.
The day after earth day, 300 volunteers removed 19,560 lbs. of litter and debris from Harrisburg City Streets. On Forster Street, around 40 volunteers helped revitalize the areas from 2nd to 6th Street. Around 30+ rose bushes were planted, hedges were trimmed and trash / debris was removed.
After a 2 year break due to COVID-19 restrictions, HYP was happy to rework this area of Harrisburg that carries heavy foot and vehicle traffic. Beyond our committee mission of beautification, our community’s safety continues to be our priority.
Along with this marquee event, our City Beautification committee will continue its cleanup efforts around the city and utilize our Atlas Street community garden. New this year will be a cooking demo showcasing farmers associated with the Broad Street Market.
HYP is thankful to those who support our mission of making Harrisburg a better place to live, work and play. Thank you to Exclusive Platinum Sponsor: Enders and Gold Sponsor: KPMG for choosing Forster St Cleanup this year!
